If you were at any of the locations during the specified timings, you should monitor your health closely for 14 days from your date of visit as a precautionary measure, MOH advised.

All five cases were linked to the TTSH cluster, with three visitors to Ward 9D, a pharmacist and a patient having tested positive. This brings the total number of cases from the TTSH cluster to 40.

The measures include reducing social gathering group sizes to five, bringing forward the implementation of TraceTogether-only SafeEntry and reduced capacity or temporary closure of selected high-risk venues.
